    The food and drinks were tasty. The service was slow, but not terrible. The people were nice. Nice ambience. Very close to the The Orpheum theater and parking. But $160 for 2 entrees, 4 tiny margaritas, extra chips and a side of guacamole? Really? This is DTLA not Monte Carlo.

    The ambience was nice, the service prompt and friendly, the food tasty and an excellent value for the money, but the background music amplified to rock concert levels made it impossible to carry on a dinner conversation without shouting, and unfortunately we won't be back.

    We were very excited to try out this new Mexican steakhouse but found the only positive was their margaritas. We waited an hour and a half for our food, with no apologies or anything comped. The food arrived overly salty and cold. I assume the waiter had forgotten about our table because other tables around us were being served.

    They just opened so take this with a grain of salt. We came in waiting for the rest of our party to show up and ordered a few drinks and some apps at the bar. Drinks were delicious and the apps came out in a reasonable time. Get the Street Corn, Skip the guac (manchego is too salty), skip the calamari. We squeezed into happy hour pricing, go there for happy hour the apps and the drinks are well worth it. We were seated at our table on a side of the restaurant that didn't have any servers. It took 10 minutes for a server to greet us. We got in all of our food and drink orders because we didn't know when he'd be back. The next round of drinks didn't come out for another 15 minutes with no apps and no water. Maybe 5-10 minutes later we flag down a server for some water. About 45 min after ordering our food comes out with two orders missing and all the apps at once. The last two orders didn't come out until the rest of us were finished with our meal. They were both lobster enchiladas and unfortunately were not great. Rib Eye Chicharron - A+ Think of this like ribeye tacos. Served with corn tortillas. Must like beef fat. Rib Eye - A- Could have been hotter but the beans and sauces were amazing. The roasted veggies had incredible char. The steak itself other than the serving temp was cooked a perfect medium rare. Just sat a bit too long. Lobster Enchiladas - Overcooked skip this one Brussel Sprouts - A+ better than most steakhouses Calamari - Skip this one. Good not great. Octopus - Skip this one too. Beans overpower the Octopus. This has nothing to do with Octopus in Spain. Drinks all A+ not a bad drink in the house. We ordered Whiskey, Gin, and Tequila. They finished with a birthday dessert for my fiancé. All restaurants take a while to get the hang of service and it takes going to a restaurant to figure out what they do well. I would definitely recommend going in about 6 months when they've figured out their kinks.

    We really had high hopes for this place. Here are the pros and cons Pros: great location, nice restaurant and corn starter and drinks were good. Cons: service was awful (waited 30 mins for drinks). The heaters outside do not work Food: steak was aggressively salted and underwhelming. Lobster enchiladas tasted like they came from a can. Worst enchiladas, all flare no substance. No flavor. A lot of improvement needed.

    Our entire experience was amazing. We started at the upstairs bar where we had great tasting drinks. Once we were seated we started with the street corn. You have to have the corn trust me you will thank me for the tip. The sauce and mix of spices makes for a fine tasting corn. The tostadas and chips will keep you pleasingly occupied while waiting for the main course. My friend and I chose the filet as our main entree. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the dish came with some side dipping sauces that tasted great with the onions and cabbage. We also had a side of Brussels sprouts. Sadly we did not leave room for dessert but we will definitely be back.
